Thanks. I ordered some in a frenzy of patrionism. I'd love to see a full-sized Canadian benchmark with a little more detail. I am looking forward to these ones though!

managed to get some last night during a gathering, they are nice looking and the size difference from what you normally see is a nice change.

I had considered doing a Canadian benchmark last year but they are so plain and nothing as fancy dancy as the US benchmarks that I decided against it. A smaller Canadian benchmark, though, such as this one, is a good way to go.

Also ordered a set - If they look half as nice in person as they do in the picture, they'll be WOW!

Well, mine arrived yesterday and they look TWICE as nice in person. For such a simple, plain design its hard to imagine how nice they really are. Sort of like Shaker furniture i guess.

 

Thanks guys

Picked up 2 at a caching event from the "Geeks".

They are a unique coin as they are thicker in the middle then on the edges. First time we've seen this done.

Hats off to the design team.
